National Library Week:In April, focused on poetry for our National Library Week celebration. Thanks to a grant from The Cherry Creek Foundation, we invited guest artists and faciliators from the local non-profit organization Art From Ashes to hold 4 transformational poetry and spoken work workshops with students during the week. It was a powerful experience for those who participated. This video demonstrates some of the students' experience during National Library Week.
